C1. Firm Overview
Ian Mackinlay Architecture + Cianfichi, Associated Architects, is located in San Francisco and Walnut Creek. IMA+C
provides consulting services in master planning, architectural design, interior design and construction administration. As
Associated Architects, IMA+C has been providing these services to their clients for the past 2+ years.

Ian Mackinlay, FAIA, founded Ian Mackinlay Architecture, Inc. (IMA) in 1990 to provide clients with a full range of
architectural design and construction phase services. Prior to founding IMA, Inc., Ian was president of Mackinlay,
Winnacker, MacNeil Architects for more than thirty years. Over the course of his distinguished career, Mr. Mackinlay
and his associates have been recognized for design excellence more than 50 times including three national AIA Design
Awards. That tradition of excellence is continued by the current staff of eleven who average more than 20 years of
experience in architectural design and construction.

Paul Cianfichi, AIA, has been providing architectural services to Community Colleges for more than 30 years. During
this time he and his staff have prepared numerous preliminary and final project proposals to the State Chancellor’s Office
valued at more than $100 million in construction.

The master plan and design for Las Medanos College won two AIA Design Excellence Awards. In addition, Paul and
his staff have more than 40 years of experience working with the Division of the State Architect.

In addition to a traditional architectural practice, IMA+C is currently providing a variety of specialty consulting
services to Owners, public entities, contractors, attorneys and other architects. Even the simplest projects can have
complications that derail them. IMA+C’s specialty consulting services are utilized by our clients to respond
proactively to expected problems and to react to unexpected ones. IMA+C’s Peer Review/Quality Assurance
reviews of final documents have proven valuable to our clients by identifying problems before construction starts.
When problems do arise, our expertise has proven invaluable for strategizing solutions to avoid the cost and delay of
lawsuits, or in helping resolve such suits once underway. IMA+C has found that hands-on experience in an active
design practice makes us more credible specialty consultants. Likewise, our consulting practice gives us insights into
the range of issues encountered in today’s construction industry and adds significant value to our design services.

Ian Mackinlay Architecture + Cianfichi makes a strong, highly experienced firm with unique in-depth knowledge of
building systems. Expertise and excellence in design ability allows IMA+C to achieve outstanding results for our
clients.

ARCHITECTURE
Master Planning
Translating the impact of changes in client groups and the physical constraints of a site into an implementable scheme of
identifiable modifications and additions to college facilities. Services provided include expedition, population trend
analysis, site evaluation, budget impact analysis, collecting and codifying staff input, preliminary cost estimating, and
time and budget impact analysis report writing and presentation.

Programming
Refining the scope and detailed project requirements of projects identified in the master planning process.
Producing effective documentation of the project requirements as identified by college/district staff, faculty and
students, and other client groups. Services provided include meeting with client groups to collect and assess
identified needs, recording and translating the data collected into physical space needs/relationships and properly
reporting those so that subsequent designs can be evaluated for the degree to which they fulfill the identified needs.
Assist district/college in submitting to state chancellor’s office for approval and funding of projects.

Design
Synthesizing the program data into designs of physical structures that fulfill the program requirements and create
supportive and fulfilling environments for all end-users. Services provided include design charettes, graphic presentation
of preliminary schemes and documentation of the agreed scheme.

Space Planning
Synthesizing the program data into layouts for administrative, educational, staff, faculty and student spaces. Particularly
effective in designing areas shared by multiple user groups or departments. Practically speaking, these services serve as
a bridge between the program and the construction documents where flexible, open-plan spaces are desired. Services
provided include meeting with client groups to collect and assess identified needs for space and adjacencies and
documenting those needs in furniture layout plans for the purchase and layout of furniture, voice/data and visual
communication requirements.



                                                             2
Construction Documentation
Defining the detailed construction requirements for the contractor to build the facilities envisioned in the design.
Services include production of drawings and specifications, materials research and coordination of the physical
requirements for those systems designed by the various engineering disciplines.

Bidding and Contract Award
Combining the construction drawings and technical specifications produced by the design team with the Owner’s
bidding and contract requirements, and issuing that package to qualified contractors. Disseminating the answers to any
questions raised by any bidder to all bidders, assisting the Owner in evaluating bids received and helping determine the
appropriate contractor selection. Services include answering bidder questions and preparing addenda as needed.

Construction Administration
Monitoring the progress of the Contractor and evaluating his performance against the requirements of the construction
documents. Services include periodic site visits, review and recommendations for approval of Contractor payment
requests, responding to requests for information/clarification, review and recommendations for approval of Contractor
change requests and evaluation of the Contractor’s final completion.


SPECIALTY CONSULTING
Mountain Architecture
There are numerous problems related to building in cold environments that are unfamiliar to many owners and architects.
Ice dams and icicles, damage resulting from snow falling from roofs, stockpiling snow removal spoils and vapor barrier
locations are examples of issues with serious consequences to the built environment. Services provided include site
planning/master planning, drawing review and detail consulting.

Building Code Compliance
The staff’s in-depth knowledge of the safety codes, fire codes, and building codes is required in order for the firm to
provide both litigation support and design support to other design consultants. Our building code-related consulting
services give us an advantage in the preparation of our own documents. Cianfichi Architecture and Planning has
broadened our knowledge to include the Division of the State Architect’s additional requirements and interpretation of
the California Building Code, Title 24.

Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance and CAC Title 24
Often mistakenly referred to as a building code, the ADA is actually a civil rights law subject to interpretation by the
courts rather than permit issuing agencies. Compliance with published regulations intended to guide the decisions of
designers and owners is a complex and ever-evolving problem. Services provided include drawing review, surveys
of as-built conditions, and documents to revise new designs and/or to renovate existing buildings to meet the ADA
and California Administrative Code, Title 24.

Roofing, Wall and Foundation Waterproofing Systems
In IMA’s experience nothing is more likely to cause a dispute than a water leak and the damage related to water
intrusion. Waterproofing products and systems are constantly evolving and not every new idea is an improvement.
Understanding the failure process, IMA has repeatedly identified effective solutions to leaks that are less disruptive and
more easily implemented than mass demolition and replacement. Services provided include drawing and detail review
and consulting, damage assessment and mitigation recommendations.

Product Research, Documentation and Suitability
Several times in our practice, we have had to verify product claims. This is done through testing of materials and
verification of the material or product serviceability and performance. This last year we also developed a system to
raise the fire rating of gypsum wallboard to meet our clients’ requirements. This new system has received American
Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) approval and will be listed in their standards. Our ability to develop new
building systems and develop testing systems has saved our clients time, usability of buildings, and costs.



                                                              3
Design and Construction Defect Analysis
IMA is regularly called upon for our litigation support services to analyze defects in existing designs, construction
drawings and constructed buildings. Such analysis requires a thorough working knowledge of the prevailing practice
and Standard of Care of the design and construction industries. Services provided include review of file documents,
construction drawings and as-built conditions.

Specifications and Technical Reports
Rick Flood’s (AIA, CSI) expert knowledge of materials, construction methods, and construction law gives him a solid
foundation in writing and developing specifications for new construction and renovation projects. Mr. Flood has written
and published several articles in professional journals on the subjects of appropriate use of materials and construction
methods. Along with Rick’s experience, the office staff is well versed in their knowledge of the construction industry.
The firm’s specifications and technical report writers draw from the staff’s experience to develop outstanding, well-
written reports and specifications.

Remedial Design & Reconstruction
Once building failures have occurred, assessment of the scope of damage and the most effective corrective action is
required. Services include damage surveys, preparation of scope reports and reconstruction drawings and specifications.

Peer Review/Quality Assurance
Once the design team has completed construction drawings but before the Owner has committed to start construction,
evaluation of the documents by an experienced architect has saved IMA’s clients hundreds of dollars over the cost of that
review. Issues of constructability, discipline coordination and incomplete or incorrect documents can each result in
project delays and uncontrollable contractor claims. Services provided include document review and reporting.

Alternative Dispute Resolution
When a claim escalates into a dispute, a fast and cost-effective solution is usually in the best interests of all concerned.
IMA, and particularly Jack Kemp, AIA, through our affiliation with the American Arbitration Association, has provided
arbitration and mediation services in design and construction disputes for more than thirteen years.

Neutral Architects
Over the last six years, IMA helped Pioneer the concept of Neutral Architect. A Neutral Architect comes on board after
the construction project has already been completed and the building owners and/or occupants have lodged complaints
against the contractor. The Neutral Architect has no connection with either party in the construction process, nor with
any associated representatives. The role and function of the Neutral Architect is to act as an intermediary between the
owner and contractor, and to represent the interests of the project from a neutral, professional viewpoint. The Neutral
Architect is retained by both parties to oversee the corrective measures needed to resolve the claims.

Project:            Chabot Community College, Master Plan
Client:             Chabot – Las Positas Community College District
Location:           Hayward, California
Challenge
Chabot College, at the time of the initial Master Plan, was a completely developed college site, and had not
experienced major renovation for many years. The student body had changed over the years, requiring new
educational programs. The educational departments were spread out over the college buildings making it more
difficult for departments to communicate and unify their programs. Furthermore, no major communications systems
for voice, data and/or visual had been included in the existing buildings.

Solution
The first step was to inventory the locations of programs and use of classrooms and laboratories, student services,
student government, administration, maintenance, and all smaller uses and services. The second step was to assist in
rewriting the college goals, educational programs, and facility requirements to meet these new directions the college
needed to take. Once the educational programs were in place, a physical master plan was developed to address the
new goals and educational, administrative, faculty and student building space requirements.

A reorganization of space allocation was accomplished with additions to some buildings and identification of new
structures in order to locate all departments in optimally functional spaces. New communications data, voice, and
visual (fiber optic) systems were developed and installed to bring the college up to date with state-of-the-art data,
voice, and visual communications.

Based upon the master plan, the following projects were submitted to the state Chancellor’s office for funding, received funding,
and were constructed:

     1)   Renovation and remodeling of the Math Building
     2)   $5,00,000 renovation and ADA, California Administration Code, Title 24 access compliance project for the entire
          college.
     3)   Renovation and addition to the Vocational Education Building.
     4)   The Child Development Center.
     5)   Music rehearsal and performance classroom addition and remodeling of the Music Building.
     6)   New emergency Medical Care Regional Training Center Building.
     7)   Remodeling of the Student Services Building/Student Cafeteria.
     8)   Remodeling and retrofit of the existing bookstore into a Disabled Student Center.

The following projects were non-state funded and constructed:
     1) New Bookstore
     2) Emergency exterior lighting.


                                                                29
Project:        Child Development Center
Client:         Chabot - Las Positas Community College District
Location:       Hayward, California


Challenge
Chabot College is a fully built-out campus. The challenge was to find a site suitable for a Child
Development Center that would provide appropriate drop-off access for the children, a secure playground,
and yet be part of the college campus. Access by students to its Educational Early Childhood Program
was a must.

Solution
Just large enough to accommodate the Child Development Center, a site between the Vocational Arts and
Performing Arts Buildings was selected. The Child Development Center would be part of the campus
and have access to Depot Road. In this location, the noise from the play-yard would not disrupt other
classes. Located up-wind of the Vocational Arts Building, the play yard would not be affected by noise
and fumes coming from the auto machine and welding labs. The design allows for easy visual
supervision as well as walk-in drop off for the children. It is easily accessed by the students and has
served the college well.

Project:        George R. Gordon Educational Center, Martinez
                Contra Costa Community College District Office
Client:         Contra Costa Community College District
Location:       Martinez, CA


Challenge
The Contra Costa Community College District offices were decentralized throughout multiple campuses,
with the main office located at Diablo Valley College. The first challenge was to find an appropriate site
to accommodate new, consolidated offices and computer facilities that would be easily accessible to all
three colleges. Martinez was selected for its central location and the fact that it is also the capital of
Contra Costa County.

In addition, Contra Costa County chose to locate some of its administrative offices on the second floor of
this new building, thereby necessitating separate exterior entrances for the County and the District.

Solution
The George R. Gordon Educational Center, a six-story, poured-in-place concrete structure, houses all of
the district offices as well as select Contra Costa County administrative offices. Making the most of the
gently sloping site, two separate street-level entrances were developed; the County office’s entrance is on
the second level and the District office’s entrance is on the first. The major district-wide computer center
is located on the third floor and has played a significant role in organizing and serving the three colleges.

The building is designed to take advantage of the views of the San Francisco Bay, Martinez Marina and
surrounding areas.

Project:        Contra Costa Community College District-Wide Master Plan
Client:         Contra Costa Community College District
Location:       Contra Costa County


Challenge
Develop district-wide master plan for the Contra Costa Community College District. Cometta and
Cianfichi, Architecture and Planning, as district-wide architects, took responsibility for coordinating and
developing the master plan.

Solution
Cometta and Cianfichi, Architecture and Planning, as district-wide architects, master planned four
community college sites in the late 1960s. The work focused on two existing colleges, Diablo Valley
College and Contra Costa Community College, as well as two new sites, East Campus (Los Medanos) in
Pittsburg and South Campus (not constructed) near San Ramon. Over the years Paul Cianfichi, as
principal of Cometta and Cianfichi, continued to play a major role in the development of the Colleges by
designing numerous campus buildings and completing campus master plans for both the Contra Costa and


                                                    32
Diablo Valley Colleges.

Winner of two AIA design awards for excellence in Community College design, Los Medanos opened
with a student body of approximately 2,000 and has since grown to more than 8,000. Paul Cianfichi was
principal-in-charge of the new college’s construction. The new Music Recording Studios and the
Vocational Education Buildings are the latest additions to the campus, both programmed and designed by
Paul. (Below: master plans for the Los Medanos and Diablo Valley College district sites.)

Project:       De Anza College, Flint Center Parking Garage
Client:        Foothill – De Anza Community College District
Location:      Cupertino, California


Challenge
Locate a $12 million parking structure on the De Anza College site to service both the college
and Flint Center, a performing arts center. The structure was required to blend in with other
College buildings and not create an overpowering presence on campus. Likewise, the design
was to be open and well lighted for safety.

Solution
The 4 to 4 ½ story concrete parking structure is sited adjacent to Flint Center. The site has good
access to public streets, the College and the Flint Center. To soften the size and bulk of the
building, a step-back design was created. For openness and security, a ductile concrete post and
beam frame with pre-cast concrete channels was used. This eliminated shear walls and created a
clear open view of the garage from any angle. Two-story open spaces were used to give the
effect of openness and bring natural light into the garage. The result is a functional easy-to-use
garage with ample visual security of all areas. The garage design blends well with both the
College and Flint Center, and achieved its goal of not being an over powering structure on
campus.

Project:        Diablo Valley College Computer Center
Client:         Contra Costa Community College District
Location:       Pleasant Hill, California


Challenge
Diablo Valley College required a state-of-the-art computer study area, and the open area under the
Existing Learning Resource Center was selected for its location. The Computer Center’s design had to
allow for small groups to study and talk without disrupting others in the room. Raceways were required
for cable, wires, and connections to the computers so as to avoid utilizing tabletops or floors. The area
also needed to be able to accommodate group instruction at different hours of the day. Also, included in
the program was the requirement for three computer classrooms.

Solution
The existing exterior concrete paving, benches and other site furnishings were removed from the open
area below the Learning Resource Center. A new lower-level entrance was designed to provide access to
the three new computer classrooms. Special acoustical treatment of the Computer Lab was designed,
allowing small groups to work together without disrupting students working nearby. The main computer
lab accommodates small groups as well as large-group instruction. Included in the design was special
lighting that does not create glare or shadows on computer screens. Special tables and a computer access
floor solved the issue of concealing wires and cables. The resulting facility is a beautiful renovation that
appears to have been part of the original design, and is one that functions well for students and instructors.

Project:        Diablo Valley College Skill Center: Disabled Student Services and
                Mathematics Tutorial Center
Client:         Contra Costa Community College District
Location:       Pleasant Hill, California


Challenge
Expand an existing building at Diablo Valley College from one story to two stories. Provide two separate
exterior entrances to the two programs to be housed in the building: Disabled Student Services and
Mathematics Tutorial Center.

Solution
Taking advantage of the site’s gentle slope, at-grade entrances were provided for each program. The
Disabled Student Services entrance was placed on the first floor, and Mathematics Tutorial Center enters
from the up-slope at the second floor.

The original building was not constructed to support a second floor. In order to accommodate vertical
expansion and support the new second floor, a system of steel columns and beams surrounding the
existing building’s perimeter was designed and built. This new structure was carefully integrated with the
existing building and resulted in a single, unified design. New air conditioning, data, voice and visual
communications were added to update the facility to state-of-the-art status.




                                                    37
Project:        Las Positas College, Learning Resource Center and Faculty Offices
Client:         Contra Costa Community College District
Location:       Livermore, California


Challenge
Las Positas College required a structure to house both the new Learning Resource Center and temporary
faculty offices. As the faculty offices relocated closer to their departments in the new academic buildings,
the Learning Resource Center was required to expand into the vacated areas. Separate entrances were
required for the Learning Resource Center and the department offices.

Solution
The Learning Resource Center and Faculty Offices building was sited to be the focal point of the campus
and easily accessed from all existing and future buildings. The Learning Resource Center entrance is
designed to be the main exterior entry, with a separate exterior entrance for the faculty offices. The office
spaces are designed around two open courts, allowing students and faculty to gather in outdoor “rooms”
protected from the wind.

The structure was designed with the option to either leave the courts open as the Learning Resource
Center expanded, or to enclose them at a future date and integrate this area into the building envelope.
This strategy allowed maximum flexibility in accommodating programmatic changes and expansion
within the original structure’s footprint. The architectural design blended sympathetically with existing
campus structures and set the style for future campus buildings.

Project:        Las Positas College, Master Plan
Client:         Chabot – Las Positas Community College District
Location:       Livermore, California

Challenge
The Chabot College satellite campus received approval to become a new college in Livermore. The initial
step was to develop programs and write a master plan to build out the existing buildings into a full service
college. The existing site required a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR) indicating required
mitigation for impacts on the Red-Legged Frog, Kit Fox, and existing wetlands.

Solution
Once the educational program, goals and administrative requirements were written and approved, Paul
Cianfichi, Principal-in-Charge of the project, led a team of architects and consultants working in concert
with staff, faculty and students in developing a physical master plan to meet all requirements of the
program and EIR. A small portion of wetlands was relocated on the site in order to build a usable campus
road between existing buildings and wetlands. Other environmental concerns were addressed by avoiding
disruption to protected areas.

Three major projects were achieved through approved funding request to the State Chancellor’s Office:
construction and completion of the new Learning Resource Center, Science Complex, and the roads,
utilities and full data/fiber optic infrastructure project. Upon completion of the Site Development Project,
the campus was fully prepared to accommodate the new planned buildings.

Project:        Las Positas College, Phase I Science Complex
Client:         Chabot – Las Positas Community College District
Location:       Livermore, California


Challenge
Design a new science building with Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Microbiology, Geology Vacuum
Technology laboratories in such a manner as to allow the building to double in size and yet maintain the
different programs adjacent to one another. In addition, the Math department is to be part of the building’s
planned expansion. It was preferred that the science building be located adjacent to the existing
Vocational Education Building and that truck access be available to the Vacuum Technology
Laboratories.

Solution
A two-story building was designed to provide expansion space for each program while allowing them to
maintain their adjacency relationships. This strategy of vertical expansion maximizes the available areas
within the building’s footprint. The new Science Center was sited per the Master Plan between the new
Learning Resource Center and the existing Vocational Arts/Lecture building. The site resolved two
elements: proximity to the Vocational Education Building, and access to the Vacuum Technology Labs.
It also served to complete the north side of the campus, maintaining a unity to the College until the future
planned Educational/Student Services and Administration Building could be constructed.

Project:       Los Medanos College Master Plan
Client:        Contra Costa Community College District
Location:      Pittsburg, California


Challenge
The Contra Costa Community College District asked us to design a new college on an
abandoned Military base. The site had existing marshland and garbage dump areas within its
boundaries, and experienced high winds from the west. After programming the educational and
administrative requirements, it was time to design the College’s buildings and realize the master
plan’s educational programs.

Solution
Four major study and administrative buildings were constructed surrounding an open court, with
the Learning Resource Building as the center of the College. The existing marshland, created by
inefficient drainage under the freeway, was transformed into a lake now used by the College and
community for small sailboats and general recreation. After the garbage dump area was
stabilized to prevent settling, new playing fields were constructed.

The new building, ranging from one to four stories high, spans the site’s natural swale. The
design unifies the college into a single structure, protecting the students from the high wind and
weather. All programs, including math, science, liberal arts, fine arts, vocational arts,
counseling, faculty offices, cafeteria/student services and Learning Resource facilities were
given the same exposure to the main campus circulation, establishing one unified educational
facility.

Project:        Los Medanos College, Music Performance and Recording Studios
Client:         Foothill – De Anza Community College District
Location:       Pittsburg, California

Challenge
Add new music performing and recording studios to Los Medanos Colleges’ excellent music program
facilities. One large performing/recording studio, one high-quality recording studio, and a synthesizing
laboratory teaching area were some of the challenges taken on in the design of this addition. The
complex program requirements also included a request from the college the addition’s design be
stylistically compatible with the existing Music Building.

Solution
The new addition was integrated into the existing through the instructors/department offices. This
connection provided access for the instructors to both new and existing music buildings. Students were
given an entrance to the two areas from the central court/student circulation space. The exterior style and
appearance was continued with a main entrance developed for the public attending the music program
recitals. A functional well-integrated design was accomplished.

Project:        School of Optometry, University of California, Berkeley
Client:         Regents of University of California
Location:       Berkeley, California


Challenge
Design outpatient clinic facilities, classrooms, laboratories, and administrative offices in a 40,000 s.f.
addition to the existing School of Optometry. The project would be an “infill” building between four
existing University Buildings. A 500 year-old Italian Stone Pine tree required relocation in order to clear
the site for building.

Solution
Construction was phased to allow the one-year-long process of tree relocation to be completed while
construction was underway. Richard S. Flood, AIA, CSI served as technical architect on the design team,
monitoring the building detailing and writing the specifications. The building design includes a large
outdoor deck above enclosed building space.

Location:       Irvine, CA


Challenge
The campus provided IMA with completed construction documents for Peer Review/Quality Assurance
review of their new eight story, 200,000 s.f. (est.) Neuroscience Research Laboratory.

Solution
Richard S. Flood, AIA/CSI was in charge of the review for IMA. A major error was discovered in the
code assumptions used by the design team related to the type of construction and allowable number of
stories. Identification of this problem prior to construction start saved the Client hundreds of thousands of
dollars.

Project:        Mountain Warfare Training Center
Client:         U.S. Marine Corps (NAVFAC)
Location:       Bridgeport, California


Challenge
Develop a campus for military training in high mountain terrain. Located at 5800 feet on the east side of
the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the campus plan and each individual building had to be designed to remain
fully operational during winter deep snow conditions.

Solution
The master plan was developed utilizing existing access routes and topography. Building sites and paved
areas were chosen to provide ample snow removal access and snow storage areas as well as provide
required adjacencies for this tight-knit community. Of the initial six buildings designed (administration,
dining hall, two enlisted barracks, bachelor officer quarters and fire station), all were designed to have
passive solar heating using concrete floors and trombe walls. Furthermore, deep snow and cold
environment design principles were used to mitigate any building access problems caused by deep and
drifted snow.

Project:        Beacon Day School High School
Client:         Beacon Day School
Location:       Oakland, California


Challenge
The Beacon Day Elementary School was located on the second floor of a warehouse building in an
industrial area of Oakland. In addition to classrooms, it included music rooms and a small gymnasium.
The high school was to be located below the elementary school on the building’s first floor.
Consequently, acoustic isolation was a major concern.

Solution
As Project Architect, Richard S. Flood led the design team through the entire project design and
construction phases. He worked closely with acoustical and other engineering consultants to ensure
creation of a cost-effective and quiet high school facility.

Project:        50 Fremont Street, a 41 Story Office Tower
Client:         Withheld
Location:       San Francisco, California


Challenge
The exterior curtainwall designed by IMA’s architect client leaked. In response, the building owner
planned to completely replace the curtainwall at a cost of over $8 million, an expense to be shared by the
architect and the contractor. IMA was asked to determine the party responsible for the leaks and develop
a less expensive repair.

Solution
Richard S. Flood designed a repair of the existing curtainwall that could be accomplished from the
building’s window washing platform using simple power tools. The repair was installed and passed
extensive tests by the building owner. Estimated repair costs were less than $4 million, a significant cost
savings.

Project:        New Federal Office Building
Client:         General Services Administration
Location:       Oakland, California


Challenge
Provide construction document interdisciplinary coordination, constructability, and code compliance
reviews for a new twin-tower Federal Office Building. The code compliance review would be especially
challenging since the GSA and the City of Oakland negotiated a “composite code” for the project
consisting partly of Federal/National standards and partly of the Uniform Building Code.

Solution
Richard S. Flood and Jack Kemp performed these reviews, finding more than 400 coordination,
constructability and “composite code” issues requiring resolution by the design team. It was estimated
that without such a review, costs resulting from future change orders to resolve identified problems would
have amounted to between 7% and 10% of total project cost.

Project:        New City Hall
Client:         City of Pinole
Location:       Pinole, CA


Challenge
The completed construction drawings were provided to IMA to perform Peer Review/Quality Assurance
reviews.

Solution
Richard S. Flood was in charge of the review for IMA. Major problems with building exiting and
detailing of the synthetic stucco exterior finish system (EIFS) were identified. Correcting these problems
before the start of construction saved the Client an estimated $300,000- $500,000 in construction changes
and an untold amount in repair of potential damage resulting from water leakage through the exterior
finish.

Project:       Marina Bay Master Plan
Location:      Richmond, California

Challenge
Create a water oriented residential/commercial community master plan for the defunct Kaiser shipyard
that built WW II Liberty Ships. Facilities were to be provided for boat launching and berthing,
accommodating more than 300 small boats.

Solution
The master plan provides for a planned mixed-use community. Over 200 multifamily housing units are
clustered around landscaped courtyards along the outer site perimeter. The commercial/retail space is
both centrally located and found along part of the bayfront. The bayfront is edged with an extensive
pedestrian esplanade system. A prominent community use building is located center stage on the
waterfront, adjacent to the large “Marina Green” park. Floating dock facilities provide berthing for
approximately 360 small watercraft.

Project:        Society of California Pioneers – Headquarters and Museum
Client:         Society of California Pioneers
Location:       San Francisco, CA

Challenge
The Pioneers had purchased an existing, larger building to replace their Headquarters. The new building
was large enough to expand the headquarters and archive space as well as add museum space but the
budget was limited. The office and archive areas had to continue to be functional in the new building.

Solution
Ian Mackinlay, FAIA and Jack Kemp, AIA designed a phased build-out for the new building that
maximized the current funds, expanded the existing headquarters functions and archive space, updated the
building exterior and prepared the new building for the future build-out of the museum.

Project:         Boreal Ski Lodge
Client:          Boreal Ridge Corporation
Location:        Norden, California (Donner Summit, Interstate 80)


Challenge
Design a day use ski lodge to permit expansion either vertical or horizontal expansion at a location where
the ground snow can easily reach depths of 20 feet or more.

Solution
A modular column grid design with a flat roof has provided an easily expandable lodge. The initial
10,000 SF facility was expanded to 20,000 SF after 2 years. The building was further expanded to 35,000
SF in its thirteenth year. The flat roof design doesn’t dump roof snow onto the surrounding pedestrian
areas, instead wind stripping mitigates the roof snow build-up as all normal roof top equipment
obstructions were eliminated by design. Both the master plan and lodge have received the National AIA
Honor Award.
